IT'S the dawning of
the Age of Aquarius, the moment of truth and the time where the flow
of energies, both Divine and Mundane are so intense, that it can create
an unexplainable series of experiences, thoughts, and feelings. This
is the time where the creativity of the person is so strong that it
can be thought of as a sort of divination or prophecy.
Camille de la Rosa's works are more than paintings; they are symbols
and a series of visions put into the canvas. It's about the new order
of things, the expected "end" of the "world", thus,
creating the room for a new one.
Call it absurd, nevertheless, no one can deny the depth and intensity
of the ideas that the painter had put on her work-the worldly and the
spiritual affairs intertwined in a work or two. Who amongst us are not
interested on the economic and political dealings of the most influential
and most powerful governments of the world? Who is not bothered by the
alleged hypocrisy of the world's greatest religion, Catholicism? And
who among us are more open now in the ideas of the divine powers allegedly
dwelling within us?
Perhaps, these descriptions of Camille's works are mere exaggerations
but even exaggerations had not limited itself to that; visionaries and
prophets had forewarned about the calamities that might befall upon
men and women because of their gargantuan desire for personal pleasure
and due to their hypocrisy and Narcissism. Look at the works of the
young de la Rosa: they are Tarot cards containing massive secrets that
are waiting to be unveiled.
